Canada source of climate change disinformation

The Petroleum Papers - Inside the Far-Right Conspiracy to Cover Up Climate Change by Geoff Dembicki.

"This is a book that connects the dots between the industry, politicians, lobbyists, fake grassroots groups, media and corrupted think tanks." - 2022 Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction jury

Unfortunately, this is a Canadian book, and a Canadian conspiracy (that includes Americans, too) and one of our prime ministers and his government. The conspiracy lied and told us that there was no solution, in spite of the fact that Imperial Oil researchers had found convincing evidence (in the early 1990s) that there was an effective, fully workable and prosperous solution to coming climate change.

You can listen to the author outline major perpetrators and talk about the conspiracy at

It'll be a half hour well spent.  Vancouver Island Regional Library also has copies, and there's a waiting list.
